An internship is a temporary position for students that have an emphasis on providing intentional learning objectives tied to the student’s career goals or field of study. Internships are very important in a student’s career development as it can help students:

  • Develop a network of professional contacts for future opportunities and references.
  • Develop industry-specific skills to in order to build a strong resume.
  • Test out different work environments.
  • Practice the job search process.
